Featured Reviews for Gifford, East Lothian Architects and Building Designers

Jefcoate Anderson Architects Ltd
Gifford, East Lothian Architects and Building Designers
4 October 2014
We used Gavin Jefcoate to design our new kitchen extension and complete remodel of the downstairs of our home. It's nearly 3 years since work started and we are still as pleased with the results as we were when it was first completed. The initial meetings quickly demonstrated that Gavin understood our brief of what we wanted and why we needed it. The resulting plan was a really exciting change for the house with bold creative elements which also integrated the practical solutions that at the time we were desperate for. Throughout the build Jefcoate Anderson provided project management which took away most of the stresses that go hand in hand with altering any home to this extent. We are still hugely pleased with the results and would strongly recommend using this firm if you are considering a build project.

Groves-Raines Architects Ltd.
Gifford, East Lothian Architects and Building Designers
30 January 2017
Groves-Raines Architects have provided Lead Consultancy and Architectural Services to Shetland Amenity Trust on a number of Heritage projects since 2004. These include the conservation of: Hays Dock and associated Store (built c 1820) - project value £1,100,000 Sumburgh Head Lighthouse Buildings (constructed 1821) - project value £5,400,000 Town Hall, Lerwick (constructed 1881) - Project Value £1,600,000 Client satisfaction is an imperative for the Groves-Raines team and when working with contractors, they do demand that works are finished to a very high standard. The Sumburgh Head Project was a great example of collaborative working: client; designers; contractors; etc. which delivered a project of the highest quality within time and under budget. In conclusion Shetland Amenity Trust would very highly recommend Groves-Raines Architects to other clients and will certainly use them again on future projects.
Douglas Strachan - Chartered Architect Midlothian

Professional and friendly service. Advised and guided us through submission of listed building alteration plans involving original sash window replacements so as not to fall foul of regulations. Drew up plans, specs and recommended fitters plus general helpful advice.
Visio Architecture
Gifford, East Lothian Architects and Building Designers
2 October 2019
Absolutely delighted with the work done by Visio! An extremely professional & friendly service. Gareth is a clearly talented, and very knowledgeable in his field. He paid great attention to our needs and managed to design us the perfect house! He was easy to work with throughout, and helped to whole build go smoothly. Thank you.
2B Architects
Gifford, East Lothian Architects and Building Designers
11 March 2016
2B were commissioned to provide concept drawings and take the design to planning approval and subsequent building warrant issue. At all stages they were courteous, kept to appointments made and listened to our requirements. The designs produced were of a high standard and matched with what our expectations were. We wanted a shell provision for an extension and some internal alterations for a full house renovation and they have assisted in other aspects as part of the remit which has helped us tremendously. Would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone
Urban Creatures
Gifford, East Lothian Architects and Building Designers
5 February 2015
We selected Martin and Louise from Urban Creatures to design and manage the build of our house because we liked their portfolio and found that they understood our brief. As a result, the design process of the house did not take long and they provided many good ideas. Obtaining planning permission for our house was quite problematic, but Urban Creatures were very professional in dealing with the planning department. Despite them working to our budget, the quotes from the builders were at least 1/3 above our budget, which led to some changes and omissions. But at least that saved us from a lot of nasty surprises once the building work started. Urban Creatures supervised the whole building process and we had fortnightly meetings with both Urban Creatures and the builder to discuss progress and issues. Again, this was done in a very professional manner. Overall, we are very happy with the service provided by Urban Creatures. We would recommend them to others and would not hesitate to use them again.
Detail Design Solutions
Gifford, East Lothian Architects and Building Designers
15 November 2017
We were fortunate to know the owner and cannot recommend their services enough. DDS created the best use of our property and enabled us to get the most out of the floor space. In addition details & advice on areas such as lighting & layout were excellent and helped us visualise the property before work started. This in turn saved money & time which is never a bad thing. Great also with liaising with suppliers, builders and anyone working on the project. Never had an issue with flexibility and being firm where necessary on any modifications that were considered along the way.
Studio AWA
Gifford, East Lothian Architects and Building Designers
20 November 2019
Studio AWA recently designed and project-managed the renovation of our house. The brief was to open up the ground floor to let in more natural light, and to make more efficient use of the living space. Studio AWA spent a significant amount of time at the outset of the project speaking to us to better understand our desired outcome and getting an understanding of our style preferences. This time was invaluable as it allowed Studio AWA to suggest ideas that we had not considered and which had a huge impact on the finished product. This included enlarging and adding additional windows, and inserting large sliding glass doors at the rear of the house. Studio AWA also provided kitchen and bathroom design services for us and, based on the high quality of this work, we asked for additional interior design help. Studio AWA provided a comprehensive service which included the selection and hiring of the quantity surveyor, engineers and building contractor, and full supervision and coordination of all the works. We were given regular updates on progress throughout. We are really happy with the finished product which has met the objectives of our brief and gone some way beyond. Our home has been transformed to provide us with a more modern, brighter, open plan living space. We would be happy to recommend Studio AWA to anyone.
